Creative Drama in the High School.
Burger, Isabel B.
This paper presents arguments for using creative dramatic activities with adolescents and senior citizens. In the case of teenagers, problems caused by rapid transition into adult life can be confronted through dramatic material which explores these issues. Exercises need not moralize, but they can subtly present new means of dealing with conflict. With older adults, similar activities can improve self-image and can foster creative growth. Examples of dramatic experiences with these two groups, which serve these ends, are provided. (KS)
